Add Atlanta Falcons Personnel Director Dave Caldwell into the mix as a possible GM candidate in San Diego. The Chargers were granted permission to interview Caldwell, per Jay Glazer. The New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars are also interested in Caldwell for the position.
The Falcons have one of the best rosters in the league and teams are looking toward that organization for the hottest GM candidates. The St Louis Rams just hired their GM Les Snead from that organization.
Other names that we have heard mentioned as possible replacements for AJ Smith are Chargers Director of Player Personnel Jimmy Raye and 49ers Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble.
